LONDON WITH ONE LESS
Londrina’s game scheme has a characteristic of presenting a strong marking and with many committed faults. Early on, at 15 minutes into the first half, forward Marcelinho hit midfielder Barreto in the head. The move was reviewed by the Var and the referee sent the player off.
LEFT IN FRONT
After Marcelinho’s expulsion, Botafogo managed to find more spaces in the attacking field and arrive more often in danger. At 32 minutes of the first half, Pedro Castro threw the ball to Marco Antônio who made a great move, gave a pen and passed it to Warley to open the scoreboard.
ONE BEHIND THE OTHER
Botafogo knew how to make good use of the spaces offered by Londrina after Marcelinho’s expulsion. At 39 minutes into the first half, Alvinegro built a beautiful play on the right and Daniel Borges scored the second goal of the match. Soon after, at 41, now on the left, Marco Antônio tabled with Navarro and widened the score for the team.
CLOSED THE ACCOUNT
In the second half, Botafogo continued to dominate the opponent, but wasted many scoring opportunities. At 25 minutes into the second half, Carlinhos hit a beautiful cross for Warley to score another goal. The attacker hit a beautiful kick and closed the score of the match.
The teams will only return to the field next Saturday. Botafogo will face Náutico, at 4:30 pm, at Nilton Santos Stadium. Londrina will receive the CSA, also at 4:30 pm, at Estádio do Café.
